HOCKEY!

Post by JensJohansson » Sun Feb 26, 2006 7:06 am

Good luck to both teams.

I don't know, I will be really happy no matter who wins. =)

Part of me really wants to root for my native country... but the other part of me KNOWS that Finland will appreciate the gold much much more.

I have to say.. I am pretty torn!

So... this will be really fucking interesting! May the best team win!!

Indeed, this'll be a great match. Even though both teams seem fairly even, I'd rather see Finland win it, because Sweden has won in the past, so it would be nice to have someone other that the USA, Canada, and Sweden win it (no offense to you native country, Jens). But, indeed, may the best team win!
Somehow I still have an account...yay...?

Anyone knows at what time (Mexico City, US Central) will the teams play?

Canada's hockey men lost to Russia.

-left eye twitches-

This was the first time I ever considered moving to Finland. They've been playing like crazeh. Somehow I have a feeling that they will win.

Quoting myself: VITTU

Anyway, enjoyable game until it started and torment ever since but after the game I feel better than during. Dunno, for Finland, the best hockey achievement in history but it was so close to being even better. That's why I repeat: VITTU.

Now another beer and some loud music, and congrats to all you crazy Swedes! :)

Yeah.

So "Ugly" goal decided the faith of the Gold medal.. :( After the lead position Team Sweden started to play once again that backing up play system and it is not hockey,but yeah better team won and one of the few fighters in Finnish team was Hagman,Peltonen,Timonen and Selanne..Too bad that Sweden knew how Finland's 1st line played :( Aki Berg should have been replaced with Lasse Kukkonen in this game against Sweden.. :)

Best Wishes for Selanne now in Nhl and hope that Anaheim will make somekind of surprise..Well,now i must get to see Stratovarius 7.4 in Jyvaskyla :) It is the only cure for this empty feeling..Now listening Stratovarius -Hunting High&Low- :twisted:

You'd prefer a slower, more retarded game than hockey!? Did you take too much Ritalin today?

@ topic: I wish I saw that game (had to help in a church service at the time). But apparently, the Game-Winning-Goal was a very sloppy one from what I heard.

Hockey has much faster tempo than soccer I think, so my opinion is that watching soccer is more boring when compared to hockey, but never mind, I like watching both. :)

faster or not faster, I don't like to watch hockey. Just that. It's what I think, you people like it or not. And if I felt like saying it is because I just wanted to say it. And if I feel like saying soccer is more fun than hockey, than I say it. And then, if I want to say that tennis is the best sport of the world, I say it. :roll:




Tennis IS the best sport of the world. :D

As you all know my first love is football (American), I also really enjoy soccer. Hockey is cool too. I am sad the Olympics are over. I feel that it is humanity at it's best. Music and sports unite people, politics divide people. I like unity.

We have the World Cup coming up though, and that will be fun.


Good Hockey game
